Real-life Pokémon fossil museum coming to Japan

Pokémon fossils have always been a big part of the series, starting with the very first games, as have the inclusion of museums. A new collaboration with Japan’s National Science Museum will bridge the gap between the Pokémon and human world, allowing fans to learn more about each at museums across Japan. The exhibit will make its way across the country, starting in Hokkaido with the Mikasa City Museum,

Starting this summer and ending in 2023, the exhibit will teach visitors about some of the real-life counterparts to fossil Pokémon. You can see that concept in the promotional art below.

Unfortunately, with COVID-19 travel restrictions in place, it may be difficult for fans from overseas to visit. Hopefully there will be some good YouTube videos of the experience for us to check out!

Let us know what you think of this event in the comments below or on Discord!
